Geneva 11': Alfa Romeo 4C Concept is a Baby 8C

Alfa Romeo has unveiled the 4C Concept, which is a preview of a new smaller sports car from the brand. The 4C Concept looks like a mini version of the 8C Competizione.

The 4C Concept is based on a new lightweight platform and has a total length around 13 feet plus a wheelbase that is less than 8 feet long. According to Alfa Romeo its dimensions emphasize the compact size of the car and also accentuate its agility.

The 4C Concept is powered by a 1.75L four-cylinder turbo that puts out 200 horsepower. Although 200 horsepower doesn’t seem like a lot, the concept only weighs just over 1,800 pounds thanks to the use of carbon fiber and aluminum. It’s lightweight means that the 4C can reach 0-62 mph in less than five seconds and has a top speed over 155 mph.

The 4C has already been confirmed for production, which will start next year.
